Saint Paul, MN (August 22, 2012) – The Midwest Comic Book Association (MCBA) has announced that the 24th Annual MCBA FallCon Comic Book Party will take place in the Education Building located on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds on Saturday, October 6th, 2012.
FallCon, expected to be the largest in its history, uniquely brings together many of wildly diverse elements of the world of comic books into a single 50,000-foot facility, forging the opportunity for comic book readers, fans & collectors to meet the creators who make it graphically happen. Up close and personal.
FallCon continues to benefit as a result of the region’s legendary status as a comic book creator breeder reactor and it’s ever-growing home-grown comic book creative community, a numerically exploding fan & readership base, and ultimately the recent adoption of cutting-edge comic book culture by the much of the larger mainstream media.
A unique opportunity for the growing and evolving readership of comic books–long-term fans as well as newcomers–the Party atmosphere of FallCon provides attendees with the chance to celebrate the medium as well as the opportunity to personally interface with comic book artists, inkers & writers. These include working professionals, up-and-comers, independent & alternative voices, beginners, has-beens, never-will-be’s, and all types of creative practioners in between.
Of course, no comic book party could be complete without hucksters! FallCon also features a gigantic comic book marketplace with comic book stores and dealers buying, selling, and trading all things comic books. There will be literally tons of comic books (around 100,000 golden age, silver age, bronze age, current, and collectible comic books), trade paperbacks, graphic novels, original art, manga, action figures, statues, Star Wars & Trek, collectibles–and the list goes on to a reasonable approximation of infinity.
At FallCon, expectation of the unexpected is generally expected! Costumed characters, hundreds of door prizes, surprise guests, portfolio reviews, attendees of all shapes, sizes, colors, ages, sexes, characters, and mundanes from all walks of life will converge to celebrate the uniquely American art form that is called the comic book at its epicenter, the Midwest.
New and exciting creative alliances will be formed, collector dreams will be recognized or dashed, new friendships will be forged in the fires of common interests, local charities will be benefited, role playing costume characters will be masters of all they survey, creative types will be inspired, and all will be as it should be. Something for everyone and everyone welcome!
